Pros

TFA meetings tend to be very motivational when taken with a grain of salt. I appreciate that they are so passionately mission-driven; too often other companies get bogged down in the little details. Yet, they are scrupulously organized with the little details, too.

Cons

The work-life balance is awful. I also feel that the organization has lost their focus on TEACHING, instead they are distracted by LEADING in every economic sector in the nation, it seems (law, politics, health, educational admin, etc. etc.)... yet all for the mission.

Advice to Management

Remember, we TEACH for America. Teaching is a public service. It's not about you, it's about the kids.

    It is rewarding to see students improve academically.
